A COMMUNITY IN PRAYER

To Honor God in All We Do

Prayer Wall

In 1844, George Williams founded the YMCA as a Bible Study aimed at “the improvement of the spiritual condition of young men” who he recognized lacked God in their lives.  Together, he and ten men gathered in prayer for their co-workers and the community.  The YMCA of High Point has remained committed to this heritage.  William’s vision evolved into the YMCA Christian Mission: To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.  The YMCA mission is the guiding light of our service.  It is most evident in prayers before sports games, blessings at meals and vespers to close the day of camp, but an equally important aspect of our mission is the character and culture that fills our programs and daily interactions among members, staff and volunteers. 

As capital improvements are made across the YMCA of High Point branches and Camp Cheerio through the Foundation for the Future Campaign, each facility will be enhanced with a dedicated Prayer Wall that will uplift our Christian foundation and create opportunity for communal gatherings for prayer.  With the addition of a Prayer Wall that is prominent in our facilities, we will spur opportunity to bring members, participants and the community closer to a relationship with Christ.  The Prayer Wall will serve not only as a place for prayer, but will further ignite initiatives for faith formation, such as Bible studies, prayer teams, daily devotionals, and even online Prayer Walls.  As part of this commitment to our Christian mission, we invite you to share your prayer requests and to pray for those who have initiated prayer requests with their intentions. 

Prayer Walls made possible through the generosity of Coca-Cola Consolidated dedicated “To Honor God in All We Do”.

I'm asking you to pray that I can see and speak to my 7 year old autistic son. I'm asking that God will turn this whole situation around into my favor. I'm asking that God will allow my son to come live with me so that I can raise him in Jesus Christ.

Prayers needed for several friends facing financial hardships during COVID-19. Also, a close friend has suffered a series of strokes and is in recovery now. He is doing well, but faces an uphill climb. Another friend has lost a family member to suicide this week. Please keep these friends, as well as my family, in your prayers.

Ann Graham Lotz (Billy Grahams daughter) Has asked that we, as the body of Christ, take one hour today to simultaneously pray with fellow believers across our country on behalf of our country. Begin at 7:00 pm.  We urgently need God's intervention in our country and our lives. Please set aside this time for prayer. For more information visit Ann Graham Lotz.org

For camp leaders, parents and kids.  That we will strike a balance of safety and great experience.  That disappointed children will be comforted in your grace.  For parents who are returning to work and looking for safe child care.  Help adults make the best decisions for their children, and children give parents grace for the disappoints they are experiencing.

Dear Lord, I would like to pray for help on getting a job since my employer is laying us off permanently at the end of the month of May. I don't know how can I pay for my financial responsibilities and health insurance. I need your assistance since I cannot do it on my own. Please help me to get job interviews and a good job with good benefits, pay and good manager. I pray that as seek out effective employment, that I will speak only as you lead and nothing shall be on my own. Let my conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone. Lord, this day You know my needs, You know my struggles, You know the crisis I face each day and you are not a God of confusion but a God who hears and answers.

I pray that Your people who are called by Your name would humbly pray and seek Your face and repent of our sins. I thank you for Your beautiful promise that You will hear our prayers, forgive us and heal our land ! In Jesus' precious name, Amen I also ask readers of this wall to pray for a young mother of three who has a brain tumor.

This was a prayer from a French commando heading towards the beaches of Normandy: "O Lord, Thou knowest how busy I must be this day. If I forget Thee, do not Thou forget me. "
